Where would you consider the Jewish area to be? We need a hotel that is walking distance from a shul and Shabbos meals.

I guess we will eat at Aleph Aleph and daven nearby.
It seems from my search that most of the good hotels nearby are booked or very expensive for our dates.

What is a better location in terms of walking to Kosher restaurants:
Chabad area or next to Alef Alef?
Also we are arriving on Friday afternoon and we want to eat at Alef Alef on Shabbos. Is there a way to order Shabbos meals in advance? Does Chabad do Dinner? Lunch?

Bachur Tov was very reasonable.
The Shusi place was expensive and so was Alef Alef IINM.

The restaurants there are not expensive in general. Bahur Tov is very good and cheap, as is pizza prego and others. Certainly cheaper than US or Israel. Quality also excellent.

Eg in Bahur Tov a large portion of skewers + fries + salad will cost around EUR 13 = USD 15 including tax and service. Lamb chops EUR 15. Take-away pita with chicked EUR 6. Excellent value!

imo yes, because they are beautiful, and shonbrunn has beautiful gardens and falls outside too, great for taking pictures. also its right near the zoo which we enjoyed too. in general there are beautiful buildings all over vienna, which are just nice to see from the outside
